Time to move to the cloud is now

Time to move to the cloud is… now!

Cloud used to be just a buzz word to sell a concept. Now, it’s everywhere. In both our personal lives and spreading throughout organizations in different industries. This leaves the same question hanging in our minds: how can I make the most of it? [+]

Is Cheap and Unlimited Cloud Storage Bad News?

Everyone can agree, storage quotas for cloud services are increasing very quickly. And this means only one thing: cloud storage is getting dirt-cheap. This is nothing new, as organizations have been getting more and more gigabyte (GB) for their buck in the past months. Some of the industry’s biggest cloud players, like Amazon, Google and Microsoft have been engaging in a war on storage. Who will include the biggest quota at the lowest price? And who will cut down prices to low prices we've never seen before?  [+]

Four Questions You Should Ask Every Cloud Provider

Assessing cloud providers can be hard. With many of them promising the moon when they can’t offer it, it’s normal to be skeptical. Plus, there is the lingo. How can you be assured their claims are true when you don’t understand the acronyms and different certifications that make a provider reliable? [+]

Why Is Software Delivery This Affected by Anti-Patterns?

As I’ve been reading about software delivery for quite some time now, I came to realize that software developers across the industry experience the same problems. When I first started doing software delivery, like most developers, I’d go and take care of issues the way I thought was right. But the more I did online research, the more I stumbled upon articles and books describing the same problems I had and the solutions to fix them. Craziest part was, I was solving problems the wrong way and better solutions to fix them existed this entire time. [+]

F5 . Protocol
F5 NLB

Remote client IP identification using F5 NLB

Are you struggling to identify the IP traffic secure on your servers? When using a F5 NLB at the edge of your network, you won’t be able to identify on your servers where the traffic is coming from. That is unless the protocol can support adding the proper headers to leave a trace of the original IP address. Any traffic received by the server appears to be coming from one of the load balancer IP addresses, which makes it impossible for you to identify the real source of traffic. [+]

Disaster Recovery in a Nutshell: How Does It Work?

Disaster recovery. The IT industry’s latest buzz words. Although a popular subject, many of the articles out there are not providing accurate or enough information to demystify the concept. How does one explain disaster recovery to a SMB owner or an organization’s President without confusing them more than clarifying? Or without boring the hell out of them? Here’s my attempt.  [+]
